Entirely new electronics have appeared in recent years, from epidermal electronic systems (EES) to soft and biocompatible micro robots to devices that dissolve in the body. These developments are still in their infancy, however, and can exhibit less than perfect performance. The Wearable Computing Lab is focusing on systems on plastic (SoP), which are deformable and implantable, energetically autonomous (zero-power), communicate wirelessly, and have numerous applications for sight and vision.
